Concussion

Concussion

Did you know that those greatest at risk for a concussion are the young and the elderly? Think about this the next time your little one goes out for pee wee football or your grandmother gets in a car crash. Current research shows that individuals who had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) reveal higher rates of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, depression and other conditions. If you’ve ever experienced a concussion before, you know you are more susceptible to another, but just how much more? If you have had one concussion, you are 3x more likely to have a second and if you have had two concussions, you are 8x more likely to get a third concussion! Just remember this, a concussion is a functional injury and therefore likely will not show up on imaging. Bring your loved one in for an evaluation and see how we can take care of you!
